Introduction:

Scientists have discovered a revolutionary new treatment that makes you live longer. It enhances your memory, makes you more attractive. It keeps you slim and lowers food cravings. It protects you from cancer and dementia. It wards off colds and flu. It lowers your risk of heart attacks and stroke, not to mention diabetes. You’ll even feel happier, less depressed, and less anxious. Are you interested?

Sound like a new pharmaceutical?

Nope - it’s sleep.

We all understand at some level the importance of getting a good night’s sleep. Sleep is vital for all mammals for physical, cognitive, emotional and social well being.

But do you understand the effect of sleep on pain or on the state of the patient who walks through your door?

A lot of the symptoms of patients with persistent pain conditions experience can be directly related to their poor sleep.  In fact, research is now suggesting that poor sleep could be a driver to persistent pain as opposed to a consequence of it.

It’s important to note that helping people change their sleep can not only change their pain but also address many of the psychosocial factors in pain.

About The Panelists:

Carolyn Vandyken

Carolyn is a Pelvic Health Physiotherapist, has co-authored the first book on patient-centred pain biology education for pelvic pain, Why Pelvic Pain Hurts, and also co-authored three peer-reviewed framework articles with Sandra Hilton on the assessment and treatment of persistent pelvic pain.

She co-owns a Canadian-based teaching company, Pelvic Health Solutions, and teaches internationally on the physiotherapy for pelvic floor problems. She also manages her own practice in Huntsville, Ontario.

Debbie Patterson

Debbie Patterson is an orthopaedic physiotherapist with a special interest in the treatment of persistent pain. Early in her career, she recognized that the medical model of physiotherapy treatment often failed people with persistent pain. This led her on a career path of learning about the current science of pain and searching for clinical relevance in the treatment of pain.

For over 25 years her clinical practise has focused on providing evidence-based treatment for persistent pain conditions, including chronic low back and neck pain, complex regional pain syndrome, phantom limb pain and fibromyalgia. She has treated pre-teenage children with chronic pain conditions, teenagers, and adults.

She was a founding member of the Canadian Physiotherapy Pain Science Group and later was a founding member of the Pain Science Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association, serving on the executive as Secretary for two years. Debbie is committed to postgraduate education of health care providers.
